Sporting Chance 24-hour One-to-One Counselling

What is it?

These services are provided for current and retired professional squash players competing on the PSA Tour, fully funded by the PSA Foundation. One-to-one counselling is a form of talking therapy designed to move individuals forward to a place of balanced emotional wellbeing. To facilitate treatment, Sporting Chance has a large network of highly qualified and fully insured counsellors. All the counsellors in their network operate within guidelines and principles established with Sporting Chance; some are ex-professional sportsmen or women who have trained as therapists or counsellors after retiring from sport. 

What to expect when you contact Sporting Chance:
  • If you are making the initial call, it will be answered by a trained counsellor in English
  • Alternatively, you can complete their contact form and a trained counsellor will give you a call in your choice of language
  • During the initial call or message, let them know you are a squash player from the PSA Tour.
  • You can say where you are calling from, so that future correspondence or sessions with a counsellor work for you and your time zone. 
  • If you’re having any follow up phone or video calls, these will happen within 24 hours of the initial call, from a trained therapist in a field relating to your current situation.
